surely he's still burning off energy being allowed to leap about rearing & bucking & almost squishing that girl? Lol

Those videos were when he was still in racing, but I think he's stopped now because there are a couple of videos of her teaching him to jump.

Why so defensive? I think its a bit of a deal considering a) the horse is deprived of natural horsieness and b) the girl is letting it act a fool. Whats it to you? We're all concerned horse owners/riders here...?

Sorry, but this gets my hackles up!
This horse needs to get out, or be sold. I'm always worried about my horses welfare: mentally, physically, emotionally... Yeah I know they are supposed to be a relaxing "hobby" but they are part of my animal household. My RESPONSIBILITY.
Her take is that it's funny/entertaining to have him behave in this manner, not be worried as to WHY he is FREAKING out at the sight of grass or space. It's sad. Some horses can be fine kept up 24/7 or at least act that way, not this one.

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

Yeah obviously this is a bit extreme...I have NEVER seen a horse act like that around grass because he's NEVER let out on it. That is just sad.

I have seen horses who don't have any access to grass, and honestly, I have never seen them act THAT crazy.

I don't think its the grass that makes him act like that, or else he would act like that only if he was out in grass, not in a muddy paddock also.

I think he just has a ton of energy, and the poor guy has no where to run it all off. That's a big horse, and a paddock a size where I wouldn't put my dog in it without feeling that he would need to be taken out to RUN occasionally!

I would be more than willing to take that large thing off her hands, and give him somewhere to run.

I didn't get those paddocks, I have never seen one shaped so weird... its not a square even, just a... jacked up triangle, where he can barely turn around without touching the other side.

Maybe she doesn't know, maybe she thinks his conditions are fine, and he is just being a "******". Maybe she doesnt think that he needs to RUN! But she should be told.

Poor guy :(

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

I have something typed up, but I truly don't want to get her pissed because we talked about this... But the video IS public I guess... The comment is nice though, so I hope she wont get mad
